Cat On My Lap

The fluffy cat sat on my lap
would reach out and scratch any cat
with similar attempt.
The cat, was a lovable one
whilst the rest were either limping
with a chipped ear
or wounded, having too little to eat.
Carrie Buck had to cut her Fallopian tubes
"Three generations of imbeciles is enough." Said Holmes,
a physician, a scholar of history, and
a Humanist.
It wasn't too long ago
a century perhaps
Some privilege decided the fate of the underprivileged
while I stroke that lovable fluffy cat
who is sitting on my lap
reaching out her paws
meows, "Look out for imbecile!"
(~Reading "The Gene" by Siddhartha Mukherjee)
